Holiday Memetime: Subliminal Signals

The barman looked at it and then looked at Ford. He suddenly shivered: he experienced a momentary sensation that he didn't understand because no one on Earth had ever experienced it before. In moments of great stress, every life form that exists gives out a tiny subliminal signal. This signal simply communicates an exact and almost pathetic sense of how far that being is from the place of his birth. On Earth it is never possible to be further than sixteen thousand miles from your birthplace, which really isn't very far, so such signals are too minute to be noticed. Ford Prefect was at this moment under great stress, and he was born 600 light years away in the near vicinity of Betelgeuse.

I now live (according to Google Earth): 2,879 miles from my birthplace.

This would be the furthest I have ever lived from my birthplace. Anyone else?

Edit: jnanacandra== 2787 mi.

Why no... we're not originally from the Pacific North West. But then again....
aiden_freeman == 32 mi. Guess it's time to move to New Zealand ;)
